Wild Rose Heritage Center Opens This Week

I’m excited to spread the word that Tuesday, Oct. 7, exactly one year after the 92-year-old Jarvies house was moved from Main Street to a small piece of park land on Bates Street, the Old Town Keller Foundation plan to open its doors to the public.
Foundation members and volunteers have spent the last year transforming the home into the Wild Rose Heritage Center. It will serve as a Keller information center, complete with a small gift shop, and host heritage events, speakers and displays as well as private events.
The home was donated to the foundation last year by Old Town development partners Cary Moon and David DeWald (Texas Bleu Steakhouse is now under construction in its former spot next to Keller Tavern). The City Council agreed to a 25-year land lease with the organization for the house to sit on park property, and city construction is taking place now to add parking and a sidewalk along that portion of Bates Street, in front of the park and heritage center.
